Round 3 of Women's Premier Cricket saw a standout all-round performance and another three individual performances that were the highlights of the weekend's action.
At Toorak Park, Ringwood came away with the points after 16-year-old Olivia Henry starred for the Rams, scoring her maiden century (103) opening the batting for the Rams in their 7/306 (skipper Bhavi Devchand also broke through for her maiden century, going on to 113) before taking 4/27 to dismantle Prahran for 121 despite 51 from Paris Bowdler.
At Box Hill City Oval, Box Hill came away with the points against in a rain-affected game with Zoe Griffiths (42*) and Holly Spencer (3/22) the best for the Mustangs, while EMP was best served by Nat Schilov (71) and Chloe Rafferty (69) after a top-order collapse.
At Yarrambat, Melbourne came away with the points against the hosts Plenty Valley. For the visitors, Elly Donald (38), Teagan Parker (37), Rhiann O'Donnell (36) and Olivia Downes (5/15 off 10) were their best, while the hosts were best served by Jasmine Nevins (3/28).
At time of writing, Carlton-Brunswick had come away with a win over Dandenong with details still being confirmed.
Finally, Melbourne's Alana D'Aquino was at it again, scoring 200 retired in the Women's Premier Thirds today against Plenty Valley. After scoring 115 last week against Box Hill, D'Aquino dominated from the outset and left the Bats' attack with no answers on how to curtail her strokeplay.
